Programs, Centers & Institutes

Western is proud to be home to a number of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary institutes and programs. Many were founded at Western because of our advantageous location situated along the Salish Sea, between the major metropolitan areas of Vancouver, British Columbia and Seattle, and because of the expertise of our outstanding faculty and staff.

 

Below are a list of different programs and institutes you can choose to support. You can support any of the following via the green Give Now button at the top of this page, see the programs below where you can read more about ways gifts will make an impact.
